The loss of these lies should scar on the conscience of civilized people everywhere.
This is not a discussion about abstract concepts like choice.
We are talking about brutal deaths of newborn children.
To look at the images and then and read the -- -- -- the testimony that's coming out.
Of this traveling on right now in Philadelphia but it's so important.
People need to know that this is happening this is a mass murder trial.
And the media needs to be covering it.
This is the capital murder trial of doctor Kermit does now charged with killing seven babies born alive during abortions.
This is not getting a lot of attention anywhere the National Abortion Federation statement is actually from march 21.
Couldn't find any other statements from any other groups this is what they said.
This particular facility in Philadelphia is -- -- liar and not typical of the high quality abortion care provided by the majority of abortion providers.
In this country.
We've asked a number of pro choice groups and number of representatives.
To weigh in and they have not to.
As far as media coverage NBC MSNBC have covered it zero times ABC zero times CBS zero times.
CNN has covered wants.
And we could continue with the print lack of coverage but we'll bring in the panel from there -- you wrote a column on this conference USA today.
What about this.
Well I think that.
I would love an answer the question one media isn't covering it normally they are fascinated by trials as we know.
Good Morning America has done a ten part series on this murder trial of -- heiress who murdered her.
Boyfriend so somehow that's that's newsworthy in this isn't.
I think that what the media needs to be looking out is how did this happen so while on National Abortion Federation saying this isn't how wire.
Mean that the reality is there was the regulations were being enforced and regulations were being enforced because some of the approach pro abortion rights and -- groups have lobbied the government essentially to not do this so.
If you read the grand jury testimony what you find out is that this clinic had not been.
Actually but no one has gone gone to inspect it since 1993.
And that's when Tom Ridge a pro choice Republican came into office it was and the grand jury testimony they conclude it was a purely political decision to not go.
This this facility even after a woman died in 2009 they did not send anybody out look at at the usually when there's a -- murderers like this the media will say what happened.
Nobody's asking how did this happen.
Don't I mean some of the -- -- is unbelievable.
You have a nurse.
Saying the doctor -- now -- to her that one aborted baby was so big that the baby could walk me home.
Yeah it's it's it's terrific it's -- -- -- far and it's it's disgusting and I give my own theory of a partial reason when he's not covering this.
The debate going on about partial birth abortion in this country.
The most the mainstream media treated as if it was a right wing myth.
That was -- we always -- to refer to as so called partial birth abortion as if it doesn't actually happen where that the name means nothing and is just some sort of frankly want spin and that was incredibly dishonest.
The official position of the press the United States when he was a state said state senator in Illinois.
Was that what they were doing and god knows place maybe it was poorly regulated but otherwise it was OK he voted against and fought against.
-- born wife -- back in Illinois Barbara Boxer says a baby's life doesn't start until they bring it home from the hospital.
These are the ideological positions a lot of people -- to a lot of people mainstream media committed to him.
And they were reflected in their coverage of this issue for years and all of a sudden say oh my gosh the pro lifers were right about a lot of this is just too darn embarrassed.
-- because you have Patrick Moynihan famously.
Liberal professor and senator who said of this procedure.
Long before it happened in the clinic in this particular book clinic he called it tantamount.
To infanticide -- -- what it is.
And the fact that it's not covered I think is easily explained because it casts.
-- it it it puts the pro abortion before forces.
In a very bad light it brings the issue of the -- -- abortion starkly into relief.
Here's a place would clearly went over the -- clearly engaged in the murder.
But even the ones that are second or two on the other side of the line where you are destroying.
An infant as it is exceeding the womb.
Is I think is the -- and indicated to murder.
And if you can have that position and not believe.
That all abortions ought to be illegal you can have a different position -- earlier term abortions which I think is a different category but on this.
I would think could be unanimity in the country and the reason that there is resistance.
Against either outlawing your -- regulating it.
It is because the pro choice people imagine that any regulation -- any level of any kind.
Is the beginning of the end of abortion rights.
And I think there is room for a national consensus on this if it ever was it would be on this kind of procedure.
And I'm just surprised by the stubbornness of the forces who resist any regulation or outline -- this.
I just did -- the media on on television but I should point out the Washington Post has done no staff written articles on it.
They've mentioned it in news briefs New York Times has done one article on doctor -- now since the trial started.
They did do five particles in 2011.
I should credit the Philadelphia Inquirer they have done.
Articles on it since this whole thing -- story.
We didn't know what was going on -- it wasn't for the local Philadelphia.
Media so they have actually done a great job that this clearly should be national news and I I also think it's it's sort of some -- -- -- to be delved into a little bit is liberals want regulation of every single thing right they want regulation of the air water.
Animals as a raised you know.
And banks you name and that name -- and I put myself in that category but they have this one malaria where they say.
No government regulation.
It it doesn't make any sense and I think that people need to examine that.
We've covered this story many times special report we'll continue to cover.
-- on the.
